In just a few short days, we’ll be joined by thousands of IT professionals and business leaders from around the United States at Cisco Live. Their mission? To build connections, drive professional growth and empower innovation.

This year, Cisco Live US is all about the champions of configuration; the sultans of software, the pashas of peripherals, the bhagwans of bandwidth, the wizards of wireless; the kings and queens of the cloud – the superheroes of IT.

A theme this “super” is fitting for the educators and school leaders around the world that are redefining the meaning of “superpowers” with their innovative methods for enhancing student achievement.

From connecting classrooms and campuses to implementing new technologies and learning methods, these leaders are fighting the villains (like the homework gap, small budgets and cybercrime) every day, so that their students can learn without limits.

So, all you educators (or should we say superheroes), are you ready to grab your cape and join us in Las Vegas?

First up on your “super” agenda? Stopping by the Industry District in the World of Solutions. We’ll be showcasing three things in our education booth:

Next up? Some theater presentations and sessions to get your “education-senses” tingling.

First, on Monday the 26th at 12:30pm, we’ll share more information on the shift from web-based applications to mobile apps, and how this transition is changing the way our students learn.

Then, join us for the “Digital Transformation of Public Sector” (2pm – Level 2, Mandalay Bay K) where we’ll give you the scoop on how our customers are transforming across the United States.

On Tuesday the 27th at 9:30am, we’ll tell you how to activate your teaching superpowers to drive student achievement during our session, “Open a World of Educational Opportunities.”(Level 2, Mandalay Bay B)

Then, on Wednesday the 28th at 4:45, learn how to make your network “super” with DNA for education.

And, don’t forget to join us for the last presentation on Thursday the 29th, where you’ll learn how to connect school transportation to help students maximize learning time while traveling to and from school. (11:30 am – World of Solutions, IoT Theater, Booth #4203)

So, superheroes, are you ready to start your Cisco Live mission? We’ll see you in Las Vegas.
